    Fundus photograph of a 72-year-old man referred to the retina department due to long-term, painless vision loss in his left eye. Following fluorescein angiography, prolonged arteriovenous transit time and hypoperfusion were detected. Consequently, the patient was advised to undergo cardiological evaluation.

  • Retinal Fold

    Sep 26 2023 by Mauricio Bayram-Suverza, MD

    A 38-year-old man underwent vitrectomy in the left eye due to a giant tear in the upper retina. SF6 gas was used as endotamponade. During the post-surgical check-up, it was identified that the patient developed a full-thickness retinal fold due to retinal slippage during fluid-air exchange. As the fold was away from the macular area, it was decided to observe the patient. Three weeks after the surgery, his best-corrected visual acuity was 20/30.

    A 65-year-old man came to our department with a complaint of chronic visual loss in his right eye. He had undergone cataract surgery in the same eye at another facility 8 years ago. During the examination, it was observed that the patient had no light perception in the affected eye. Further, slit lamp examination revealed a chronic anteriorized retinal detachment.
